The U.S. Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787 by 39 delegates. The delegates to the Constitutional (Federal) Convention are often called our "Framers." They were influential people in their home states, where they were selected to attend the convention. Most of the delegates were well educated in the ideas of political philosophy.

Delegates to the Constitutional Convention, held in Philadelphia in 1787, signed the Constitution of the United States. Each state sent delegates to the convention. Not all the delegates signed the Constitution as it was finally approved. Some delegates, like George Mason, refused to sign the document because they felt it was not democratic enough.
